      Got these for my wife for beginning off-road use. They came out of the box true and tensioned (and with rim strip too). Just had to slap on the tires and she's off. They look great too. For the price you can't beat them.

        Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

        For the price these are definitely the best wheels I have found! As others have mentioned, the bearings are adjusted a bit tight from the factory but simple to adjust with cone wrenches. An unexpected bonus is tires are super easy to change without tools due to the design of the rims.

          Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

          This is my second set of Nashbar/Vuelta Zerolites. I enjoyed the first pair for several thousand miles of riding—sometimes riding very hard—with only minor truing until the freehub suffered compete mechanical failure. Considering the price of this wheelset, the mechanic at my LBS suggested that I replace the wheel over servicing the freehub. Another reviewer mentioned upgrading the rim tape and I believe that to be good idea; I'm using 22mm Velox cloth tape and it mates nicely with concavity of the rim. The wheels arrived true and with strong spoke tension. These 'zerolites' are heavy for a 24 spoke count wheel – but they seem sturdy. I've done 500+ miles on the current set and am expecting to have them shop-trued in another 500. Those miles have included daily commuting, greenbelt rides, climbing over Appalachian mountains, gravel riding and curb jumping. I have 2.3" K-Rad tires mounted at ~70 psi and the pairing has been sweet.

            My wife is riding with me more, so I wanted to upgrade her bike a little. The wheels a very light and ran straight and true. Plus she loved the white color.

            Bad rim strips

            Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

            Beware of the rim strips. If I could attach a picture to this review, you'd be able to see how the rim strips are too narrow and thin. Because they are too narrow and they were assembled crooked, the tube is exposed to the sharp edges of the spoke holes. Because the rim strips are so thin, running moderate pressure (80 psi) horribly deforms the rim strips into the spoke holes. I pumped up to 80 psi for a triathlon, and one of my tubes failed within a day.

            Luckily, I had some Nashbar rim strips on hand. They are much better: 0.63 vs. 0.43 mm thick and 21.9 vs. 16.5 mm wide. After pumping to 80 psi, I've had no problems.

            I tried complaining to Nashbar and included pictures, but apparently their e-mail system blocks e-mails with attachments but doesn't notify the sender. Once I got through, they gave me a $10 gift card for the rim strips and tube.

            I consider the price paid a great value for a wheelset. If not for the price, I would have only given this wheelset 2 stars.

            I'm using this as a 2nd set of wheels for my son. One set is for mountain biking, and this set has semi-slicks for triathlons and going to/from school.

              For $80 buck, how can you beat them? I wanted an extra set of rims to allow swap during a century if needed, or between trail and road riding. They even came with the skewers.

              These are very good for the price but the hubs were binding when I received them. I had to loosen the cones and add more grease. OK but they should have been checked at the factory.

              Mounted with new set of Kendra MTB Racing tires on these. I also converted these for Schrader valves which was easy with a round file and deburred. Nice Wheelset for the price and they look awesome. They were true and Nashbar even though I'd just missed that weekends additional discount gave it to me by my asking. Will buy from Nashbar again in the future. Great Wheel set. Great Company with friendly and helpful customer service. I've put around 50 miles of road on some intense trails and mild jumps and they are holding well.

                The bearings went out on my recumbent real wheel. New wheel is cheaper than fixing the old one, and I have a spare wheel for the front. I wish there was a 20" for the front of my Burley.

                    The other comments about the rear bearing being out of adjustment are correct. My set came with the bearing way to tight. But I greased them up and got my old cone wrenches out and the rear bearings are just fine. For 79.00 they're an awesome looking set of wheels. I put them on a fixy mountainbike I set up to ride at work and they work fine but you can tell they're not upper notch when you get out of the saddle. A little dead feeling. But once you get rolling they're great.
